Greater Western Sydney’s clash with the Geelong Cats at Manuka Oval saw a sell-out crowd pack in to Manuka Oval, and as such only a handful of games took place Around the Grounds this week.

The Gungahlin Jets toppled Eastlake in Second Grade to complete their first win for the 2015 season, ending a long wait for competition points.

The race for the Rising Stars minor premiership is alive and well after Marist upset the competition front-runners in neutral territory.

In Third Grade action, ADFA/RMC kicked clear in the third term to collect the points against the Juggernauts, leaving the battle for the fourth finals spot wide open.

ADFA/RMC wrapped-up their spot in Fourth Grade’s top four with a win over Molonglo at home. The Juggernauts are just one win shy of fourth place on the ladder.

Tuggeranong showed why they are the deserving flag favourites in the Women’s Division One competition, completing another dominant win over a premiership contender, with Eastlake’s win catapulting them in to second spot on the table.

Molonglo have emerged as a legitimate premiership contender in the Women’s Grade’s Division Two competition, whilst Queanbeyan further enhanced their own premiership credentials.
